Gord knows historical vessels
The wreck on the shore near the restaurant near Jordan showed in POTW last issue is not a ‘piece of history’. It may have had a useful career as a ferry and other commercial work, but it’s dressing as a so-called sailing ship was never more than completely fanciful.
It never represented any real functional ship in either size nor appearance, particularly not anything afloat in Jacques Cartier’s time.
It was a publicity stunt for the restaurant it lays near, and never anything more than that.
